It’s been an eventful year here at Point Recruitment HQ, one which has seen us expand and build on our many successes over the last 28 years in business. As we look forward to celebrating the end of a fantastic 2017, and look ahead at what 2018 has in store for us, we thought it would be good to share our ‘Top Highlights’…
Launch of 2 new divisions; Hospitality and Construction
May 2017 saw the launch of our two new divisions. The UK’s hospitality sector is one of the largest and most dynamic. Between 2010 and 2015 the industry created 331,000 new jobs in the UK. We quickly made an impact, successfully recruiting a wide range of roles from Sous Chef to Kitchen Porter.
The newly formed Construction division brought our expertise into the local construction market. The new team, headed by our fantastic new team member Iain Stewart, has rapidly grown to become one of the leading recruitment channels for the local construction industry.
HR Update Seminars
This year we have been delighted to partner with our friends at Buckles Solicitors to bring you HR Update Seminars. The seminars proved to be very popular with our clients and focused on case law decisions over the last 12 months and changes on the horizon for 2018.
Careers Open Day
Our Careers Open Days and Evenings have been a great success and we have loved meeting lots of new candidates. It’s a great opportunity to drop in, meet our team and utilise the resource as a one stop shop for career advice and registration. However, if you can’t make it to the open days, just drop in and see us in our offices on Huntingdon High Street, no appointment needed!
Charity Bake Sale
We love to bake and we love to support our charity, Mind. So, what better than to combine the two, and hold a charity bake sale! Our team baked up a storm, the local community turned out to show their support and we raised a staggering £500 for Mind – thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that came along, we couldn’t have done it without you!
We’ll leave you with our Top Highlights from our 2017 blogs of what we think are the most important pieces of career advice if you’re searching for a job for 2018…
